I congratulate you on the great job you carry out on the forum. I found it very useful.
As I am not quite confident in the field, I kindly ask you for a help on my project on ESP8266.
I am trying to carry out a project which shows the RSSI value using an ESP-01 (black version) and an Arduino Uno.
The device is able to read the RSSI value between an ESP and a hypothetical wifi smartphone and communicates it to Arduino Uno possibly through a rather quick refresch (about 1 sec).
I still have many doubts, including the simple loading of a new sketch:
-how can I set parameters from the IDE of Arduino? e.g.:
- flash size? (with or without SPIFFS?) Where can I get these data?
Also in case I manage to load the sketch, I still cannot find an example of the sketch, which shows only one RSSI value towards only one device selected by me. E.g. I only need the distance between ESP-01 and my phone.
I think the best way is to follow the library in the following link:
However, I do not obtain any result on the Arduino Serial Monitor when I simply copy the example on ESP-01 and add only Ssid and pas. So I am wondering if I am correctly connecting TX ed RX
Furthermore the libraries SPI.h and WiFi.h are Arduino or ESP libraries?
Last thing: Do they have to get connected to each other or not? Maybe it consumes less energy when it's not connected?
Thank you very much for your help.
